In this video, I’m going to cover what you need to know about adaptogens.
What are adaptogens?
An adaptogen is usually a plant or herb that helps increase the ability to adapt and avoid damage from harmful factors. The Latin word for adaptogen is “adaptare,” which means to adjust or fit. The greek word for “GEN” means produced by or generated by. So, an adaptogen generates the ability to adjust to stress.
Stress is something that threatens homeostasis.
Homeostasis is a steady state of equilibrium. You have different normal values that are generated by different mechanisms that control homeostasis, which is your internal ability to adapt to the environment—to keep things normal. But, when you have stress, it can push some of these factors out of balance. For example, when you’re stressed, cortisol goes up. In this situation, an adaptogen can help bring that back to normal. If your immune system is suppressed, adaptogens may even be able to help bring it back to a higher level.
The four best adaptogens:
1. Siberian ginseng
2. Panax ginseng
My favorite adaptogen is ashwagandha.
Ashwagandha can be good for:
• Inflammatory conditions like arthritis
• Stress relief
• Lowering cortisol
• Adrenal stress
